Sept. 19, 2019
The design accelerates compute-intensive application performance at high altitudes.

ANDOVER, Mass.- Mercury Systems, Inc. recently announced the EnterpriseSeries RES Aero rugged rackmount server product line that delivers high performance to compute-intensive airborne applications. A completely fanless design enables optimal performance at high altitudes, while a specialized power supply is tailored to aircraft requirements.

The new RES Aero product offering addresses key challenges for aircraft systems engineers and offers a wide variety of benefits, including improved reliability.

A completely fanless, noise-free design increases system longevity and Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF), reducing potential long-term maintenance costs. Fitted to onboard plenum cabinet specifications, RES Aero servers save space and function at high altitudes, even during an unexpected loss of cabin pressure. Systems have been certified to NAVAIR MIL-STD 461 for Electromagnetic Inference (EMI) and multiple military specifications, ensuring uptime and availability in any flight environment. Patented memory stabilization technology prevents disconnect during system shock and vibration. Additional testing and certifications can be made available.

RES Aero servers are tailor-made for high-speed processing. RES Aero servers are currently deployed on airborne platforms and can be customized to meet specific aircraft computing, security, environmental and space requirements. Only 20” deep, the RES Aero XR5 1U and 2U form-factors accelerate demanding mission-critical workloads with dual Intel Xeon processors and weigh 20lbs or less. An array of high-speed I/O and PCIe expansion options offer customers maximum flexibility while a customized power-supply supports unique aircraft voltage requirements such as 270VDC. Front-access power supply I/O and LED indicators simplify maintenance by providing insights into system health and power usage.
